I Am a Night Owl

    Sigh, I don't sleep anymore.

    I have a love hate relationship with it. Love: I can just stay up and think about all kinds of stuff. Lay in my bed, in the dark, and listen to awesome music all hours of the night. Sometimes just lay there, and listen for something, or nothing. Just quietness. Talk to the...

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    I embrace this. I am tired of being told I have

    to work at certain hours and get up at a certain time because that's what's socially acceptable. If other people don't get the magic of night time that's fine, more for the minority of us. Tired of being pc.

    I love the night as its

    so quiet and peaceful. There is a beauty to the night that so many people do not see or experience. The only problem i have with being a night owl is that i can not stay awake during the day when i need to.

    I'm writing this at 2 AM,

    and I don't think I'll be going to bed any time soon. Sleep is for the weak or something, right?

    Last night I made a post about how i'm trying

    to form better sleeping habits and I made a night time / sleep schedule. I stuck to it last night and tested it out - and it worked better then I thought it was going to go for the first time! I got about 7 hours of sleep, and I feel so refreshed this morning. Better then I've...

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    I love the tranquility of the nighttime.

    Everything just seems so peaceful. Sometimes I find myself sneaking out in the middle of the night just to go for a walk outside. (Only for my brother to blow up my phone texting me to come back inside) My favorite is when there's a full moon and it just kinda glows and lights...
